Introduction

The Offensive Weapons Act 2019 introduced the concept of the Knife Crime Prevention Order.

These Orders were brought into force in July 2021 and can either be made upon complaint in your local Magistrates’ Court or as an Ancillary Order in the Youth Court, Adult Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court.

This webinar will cover these Orders in some detail and will also cover certain sentencing aspects of knife crime.
